Gonville Rd, Bootle, Then & Now

1940 – 2014

Another trip along the East Lancs Road to Bootle, which has evidence of the Blitz on just about every residential street. Bootle was hit badly because of its proximity to the docks, Gladstone Dock in particular which was where the Atlantic convoy destroyer and corvette escorts were based.

    My family moved to Liverpool in 1946 from Radcliffe, Lancs. I was 9 years old. I remember all around the Victoria Monument Church Street, etc were the aftermath of the blitz. Memories very clear in my mind of both Radcliffe and Liverpool.

    I am looking for information on a plane crash 11 January 1945 near Cheshire. I do not know what plane type or exact location, only the name of the pilot Lt Leonard D Johnson. He was reassigned to another group after completing his missions with the 355th Fighter Group, Steeple Morden UK
